When it comes to music from South America, the AudioTong releases are usually quite short, yet always impressive. Such is "Cabras" from Argentinian Adrian Juarez: only two tracks, only 15 minutes, but what a marvelous music it is! Slow, electroaucoustic compositions with manipulated piano and synths, drony and ambient-like. It's not about exploring any new territories in music, but definitely showing Adrian's own language in field of electroacoustic composition...

"Late Winter/ Early Spring" were created at the same time as the tsunami and the earthquake hit the shores of Japan. It was the late winter and early spring.

|Stapes VI-VII - Dawid Szczesny|
These pieces are continuation of a project started on an EP for (1.8)sec-records. They are all never-ending loops, created to be played live, with different timing, in different configurations. Each of them might be listened either as a never ending loop or a finished piece itself. The whole idea of using long, apparently simple loops, is to make a listener perceive each sound's repeatability and principle, which is different at every performance, depending - in some way - on accident.

Why should you be better? Never asked yourself this question? Well, knowing one's own faults and weaknesses is always the most difficult thing... Belarussian artist Vladislav Buben (aka Prus) doesn't give here straight answers but brings sounds that create a proper mood for all those who want to answer the question for themselves.

This compilation here is another step into rather unknown territories of sound art - unknown for the westernized ear, for those who have g...
